Paper Abstract

The target of this communication is to present a method for tailoring the complex amplitude and the polarization at the entrance pupil of a high numerical aperture objective lens in order to obtain focused fields with transverse circular polarization at any plane. Analytical expressions within the framework of the Richards-Wolf vectorial model are derived and some numerical results are presented.
